Vatican, Oct. 1, 2007 (see - Pope Benedict XVI has replaced Archbishop Piero Marini, Papal master of ceremonies since the pontificate of PopeJohn Paul II.

A leading disciple and private secretary to Archbishop Annibale Bugnini head of the Concilium and chief architect of the liturgical changes following Vatican II.

Archbishop Marini was noted for his penchant for liturgical innovation. Since the election of Benedict XVI as Supreme Pontiff in April 2005, Vatican-watchers had speculated that Archbishop Marini would be replaced by someone more sympathetic to the present Pope's restoration of the Roman Rite.

Archbishop Piero Marini has been replaced by Guido Marini of the Genoa archdiocese, an outstanding Liturgist in his own right.

The incoming chief liturgist for the Vatican, has been serving as chancellor and chief liturgist for the Archdiocese of Genoa. In those capacities he served closely with the former archbishop-- and current Vatican Secretary of State-- Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone
